My Life’s Journey With Bipolar Disorder is the memoir of an extraordinary woman. Joann M. Stuhr writes about the path her life has taken from its farm roots in Iowa to New York, the Pacific Northwest, and on to Europe and Japan. Throughout it all, she had a secret. Joann was living with the condition we now recognize as bipolar disorder. How she coped and lived a successful life as a math teacher and a computer programmer is only part of her fascinating story. She wrote this book "to help others with bipolar disorder to erase the stigma."
